All of which purport to tell the origin of the character, all of which contradict one another, and none of which DC has or ever had the slightest intention of standing behind should the wind shift.
Yes, they were written for different markets with different understandings of their placement within the cosmos going in, but none of them sync up with one another in large part because, to DC, everything is instantly fungible. Not in 20 years, but immediately.
Stories don't mean anything to the current leaders of the company, so why should any one iteration of a meaningless story count for anything? It's all just ink on paper, hopefully with pretty pictures, thrown out to the lemmings and maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. They don't know the difference, so how could anyone else? Here's that same story again, one more time! It's good, right? You like it? Of course you do. It's exactly the same as last time, only different. Slightly. Perfect!
Dan Didio says they're just beginning to figure out how continuity works at DC? Yeah. He wishes they were. He does not now nor ever had a clue. DC does not even have working knowledge of what a "premise" is, never mind continuity.
